Friday 18 August 2017 – Slow week

Very slow week here.  All that has happened is the installation of the fascia and guttering, the delivery of roof tiles and the installation of the roof railing.   Quiet with with regards to communication from the builder also, until I got the weekly update from our CSA which said that roofing will be done…

Wednesday 9 August 2017 – Gas problems

Having some gas problems.  I got a phone call from our SS late yesterday and once again, the plans don't comply with regulations, and the gas meter location on the plans is too close to the HWS.  Given that there is a slab for the HWS, it's easier to move the gas meter than the…

Monday 22 May 2017 – Delays

Yep, delays already. First off, the meter box. The tool that installed the meter box, has actually put it where the slab for the HWS is supposed to go.  So all services along that wall would need to be moved around, including the slab for the HWS and he didn't even bother to contact the…
